First Doses 

We are not currently offering more first doses 

We have done 7089 first doses (70% of our 10000population) and4519 second dose as of the 8th June. 

We have already delivered 70% of Cohort 12 (Age 18-29 patients) 1st doses ahead of the government schedule. 

This would not be possible without the work of an incredible volunteer force down at Dore Surgery staffed by people from across our neighbourhood. Thank you all so much.

We recommend anyone still in need of a first dose contact the national booking hotline

We are working to accelerate the schedule to 8 weeks for second doses for those >50year old. 

We will aim to keep appointments at the planned 11 week interval for under 50’s, but it may be brought forward nationally.

We will text any change to appointments via AccuBook.

COVID-19 vaccination status /How to access my vaccine record or vaccine passport?

 
Please do not call us for a covid 19 vaccine record or vaccine card. The original vaccine cards were only to help people know their second dose dates, which have often changed as the vaccine schedule changed. We have delivered over 7000doses and it is not appropriate or necessary for practices to provide this information.

Covid vac

Can I choose which vaccine I get?

It will not be possible to give a choice between different vaccines as the healthcare professional vaccinating you will have to use the vaccine that is available at the time of your appointment.

What’s the difference between the different vaccines?

The vaccines that the NHS uses and in what circumstances will be decided by the MHRA. Both vaccines are classed as being very effective. The Oxford/AstraZeneca is easier to store and transport, meaning we can deliver them in more places, and we expect to have more doses available as they are manufactured in the UK, so we would expect that most people are likely to receive this vaccine over the coming weeks and months.
